Sudden Death




A gritty, action-packed drama about one boy who is determined to take all the chances he can to get ahead in life

When Flint moves out of the children's home, he gets foster parents and the longed-for chance to try out for top local team Welbeck FC. His foster-father is the coach. But Aldo, the chairman's son, hates Flint and wants him out - especially when he sees how many goals he can score. And what Aldo wants, Aldo gets. Flint thirsts for revenge... and when a Sudden Death tournament is announced he decides to fight back. He'll round up his old mates - other kids written off as losers in life, just like him - and they'll smash Welbeck.

A sequel to the successful FLINT, already available in Corgi Yearling Books, but the book can easily be read as a one-off.
